A Walk with Dorothée Dupuis and Jessica Gysel Around the Chinese Pavilion and the Japanese Tower in Brussels

A Walk with Dorothée Dupuis and Jessica Gysel Around the Chinese Pavilion and the Japanese Tower in Brussels introduces two editors of feminist art magazines – Dupuis (Petunia) and Gysel (Girls Like Us) – chatting and strolling around Laeken Park in Brussels. The park hosts two very significant constructions designed by the French architect Alexandre Marcel and erected under the kingdom of Leopold II. The Japanese Tower (1905) and the Chinese Pavilion (1910) are illustrations of the fin-de-siècle Orientalism and cultural imperialism. A Walk with Dorothée Dupuis and Jessica Gysel continues in the thread of Buenos Tiempos, Int.’s debut production, The Ages of Beatrix Ruf: A History of Power Transvestism (2014): a fashion editorial on drag performativity commissioned for the sixth issue of Petunia magazine. For the film premiere at La Loge, Bear Bones, Lay Low – Ernesto González’s solo project – will perform an introductory concert.
